COMPETITIVE EVENTS TESTIMONIAL
"Competing with HOSA has been about so much more than just the medal. Sure, gaining recognition for your hard work feels amazing, but the networking, leadership, and education that HOSA has brought me along the way has taken me so much further than I could have ever imagined.
I have been competing with HOSA for five years now, and it has been the five most rewarding years of my life. HOSA gives you the hands-on experience that you cannot gain in the classroom. The relationships that I have gained have taken me far, and I am so grateful for this organization. To those just starting out, or to those waiting to take the jump into the competition side of HOSA, I say… Take that jump! There is nothing to lose, and much to gain. If anything, I wish I would have started sooner.
The medals in this box do not just showcase the placement in the events in which I have competed in, but they display a lot of growth. I encourage you to start today and take risks not just within HOSA, but within everything you set your mind to. You might just be surprised by the outcome!"
